For folks that are getting close to the retirement age, looking for a retirement spot that is inexpensive, secure, has excellent medical facilities and beautiful beaches, is essential if we want to spend our golden years enjoying ourselves with a fix income.
Doing some research, several places came up, but the one that caught my eye was Boquete in the Chiriqui province in Panama. this is a town of 25 thousand people with an elevation of 3,900 feet above sea level, its climate is cooler than that of low land, an average of 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit most of the year, with this temperature most people don’t need an AC.
About 45 minutes from Boquete is the city of David with a population half a million, has world class hospitals, entertainment and restaurants and 30 minutes from David are the beautiful beaches in panama’s pacific coast.
